Written by M.A. on Jul 21, 2021 after counseling with Wendy for 4 months on issues concerning parenting issues

Wendy "gets me." She raises great questions and is not hesitant to jump in with ideas and options. A great, no a critically important new relationship with lots of self learning opportunity.

Written by C.O. on Jul 04, 2021 after counseling with Wendy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I have found Wendy incredibly easy to talk to the few times we have spoken. Counseling was difficult for me to seek, and going through the list of counsellors I spotted Wendy and she just stood out to me as someone who would "get" me. I'm thankful for the conversations we have had so far!

Wendy is a phenomenal helper for me and my anxiety that I’ve been dealing with and without her help I feel as if I wouldn’t have made it as far as I have as quick as I have, so I’m very much appreciative of her.

I am very happy with my counselling experience. Wendy was able to address my issues right from the start. She helped me reevaluate my situation and come up with better strategies, and I started making progress right away. She also suggested making an appointment with my doctor to see if I might benefit from medication. I've gained a lot from our sessions. I highly recommend her!

Wendy is the first therapist who has ever made me feel seen and heard. She helps challenge me in the most compassionate way which helps me gain a better understanding of what I’m going through.

She changed my life and my outlook on therapy.

Working with Wendy has been a really good experience; she is knowledgeable and she has been extremely flexible with the ever changing directions that I've wanted my sessions to go in. She remembers specifics about the topics I discussed with her, and she allows me the time to process the ideas that she presents to me.

Wendy is wonderful. She is honest, great listener, with great suggestions. She reaches out when it’s been a few days since hearing from me but yet she’s not pushy and I appreciate that. Even though this is fully remote it’s all a very comforting experience.

Wendy is such a pleasure to work with. She is absolutely very-open minded, super responsive. Her approach is warm, inviting, easy-going and not forceful. She helped me navigate through with my father/mother family etc trauma, co-dependant issues. I received a lot of insight trust knowing that it’s safe space at all times. The techniques for my slight social anxiety has improved. Nonetheless, I also love her spiritual unconventional side of therapy techniques that help navigate and tap in to other realms. She help provide me with guidance & fair suggestions. Now I have more healing tools, routines to conquer my day to day.
